Subject: Great Details About Flying in WWII
This is a great collection of films that detail many of the things that are normally mentioned as important but not explained. In particular the different types of flak, how they work, how to recognize them, and how to try to survive them.

The film about flying the P-47 is interesting in showing the controls and different things a pilot had to know and follow just to fly let alone fight an adversary.

The last film about a P-39 reconnaissance flight is informative by explaining how a flight of planes should maneuver, separate, and rejoin and why they should do these things.

I give these films 5 stars for content. Probably more like 3 for quality. It sure would be nice to get a digital copy from the original film rather than this VHS copy.
